Al Borlin Park is the largest and among the oldest of Monroe’s parks. Al Borlin Park provides the unusual opportunity to enjoy a secluded natural experience in an urban environment. A peninsula formed by the Skykomish River and Woods Creek, it is a natural park that is thickly wooded and is crisscrossed with a network of trails. A landscaped picnic area on the southwestern tip of the park can be accessed by crossing the pedestrian bridge from Lewis Street Park. A gravel road along the eastern edge provides river access for anglers and others. During the winter, the park is sometimes closed due to flooding.
